    Seeing that our record is 93-61, 6-2 wont do it, and 7-1 is unrealistic.

    winning 100 games is not the team priority.  Team priority is to win the division and making sure they get the home field advantage and then start to rest players.   Let these wildcard teams fight to death to grab these two spots toward to the end of the season!!

    It will not be easy to get the best record and home field ;  and also rest the players. We need to keep winning to get the best record. Oakland has a relatively easy schedule the rest of the way. They do not figure to lose many of those games.  Same thing with Detroit. To get the best record, we may have to go all out in our remaining eight games.

    division win totals have climbed over the years, i was looking over ALE standings since 1987...Sox need 2 wins to extend the streak to 13 straight ALE division winners to win at least 95 games...should they win 100, the Sox will be the first ALE team since the 09' Yanks to win 100 games...due to the strike the 94' Yanks are the only ALE divsion winner to not eclipse 80 wins(70 wins) since that time..

    Detroit nor Oakland are going to win 100 games it is impossible. If they both won out Oak would have 99 wins and Detroit would have 98. So at best the Sox need to go 5-3 to lockout home field.

    But Oakland get to play all road games at Seattle and Angels. And they are not going to let them win every game!!

    Sox are 2.5 gms and 3.5 gms ahead of A's and the Tigers respectively.  We have played one more game than the other two and there are 8 mores to go.  We won't have home field advantage against those two teams if we are tied atop.  (3-3 against A's but they outscored us and 3-4 against the Tigers)  The only way to have the home field advantage in ALCS is to beat the other teams' record.  Thanks to the all stars game result, we don't have to worry about getting the HF advantage if we make it there.  Now the magic number is 7 if A's were to win all of their remaining games.  A's have relatively easy schedule for the rest of the seaon.  3 games each against the Twins, Angels, and the Mariners.  But I highly doubt they will sweep all the series.  Now the Tigers are 1 game behind 2nd AL best A's therefore the magic number would be 6 if A's ever lose a game but Tigers don't.  Tigers also have 9 more games to play and they have A's like schedule.  (3 gms each against the White Sox, Twins and Marlins).  But what would be the percentage of the A's and the Tigers winning all of their remaining games?  So we pretty much have the magic number less than 6.

    The point is that we have to keep winning to be sure of locking up home field. There may not be a chance to rest people.
